GOP’s Steve Schmidt: Trump’s sexist attack on Gillibrand ‘an assault on the dignity of the Office of President’
According to never-Trump GOP analyst Steve Schmidt, President Donald Trump’s tweet attacking Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) aren’t just clear sexual innuendo and “another moment of disgrace” — they’re also a danger to the nation.
“It bears mentioning,” Schmidt said, “how abnormal this is. The assault, the constant assault on the dignity and the majesty of the office of the President of the United States.”
“This is the exact reason why the President of the United States is not welcome in the United Kingdom,” the analyst said, to laughter from host Nicolle Wallace. “Because his presence, standing next to Her Majesty the Queen, is such an affront to her dignity that it has united the fractious parties of Great Britain in opposition to his setting foot on British soil, because of stuff like this.”
Tweets like those attacking Gillibrand are “just a constant degrading of his office,” Schmidt continued.
